Washington, (ANI): Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan had offered to help Mischa Barton to clean up her act, it has emerged. Both Lohan and Barton have often partied together, however, the Mean Girls star distanced herself from Barton after a last year party.
According to the sources close to Lohan, the two girls haven"t spoken for months, but Lindsay would help Mischa if she asked for help to get through this latest fiasco.
“Lindsay and Mischa used to go out all the time together in Los Angeles," Fox News quoted an insider as saying. “They were like kindred spirits when it came to clubbing and letting loose. They have many mutual friends, but everything shifted for Lindsay last year at a party. Mischa was completely out of control, and Lindsay sat Mischa down then to make it clear that she needed help.
“Lindsay was desperate for Mischa to clean herself up and offered a treatment facility and a therapist to help Mischa. Mischa completely ignored Lindsay, and that was the end," the insider added.
Several people close to the O.C. star have revealed that she"s been on a downward spiral for years. “No one close to her is surprised," said one pal. “Alcohol was like the gateway to other things for Mischa. Nobody has been able to stop her until now. Hopefully this psychiatric hold will force her to seek real help," the pal added.
